Redshirt freshman quarterback Gresch Jensen orchestrated the comeback and completed 23 of 35 passes for 360 yards with four touchdowns through the air. He added 23 yards rushing with a rushing touchdown too.
Justin Calhoun had three receptions for 86 yards and Samori Toure had three receptions for 82.
On the ground, Jeremy Calhoun had 15 carries for 90 yards and Alijah Lee had 12 carries for 48 yards and a touchdown.
The Griz defense sacked Bengal quarterback Tanner Gueller six times on the day. Leading the charge there was Jesse Sims who had 2 1/2 sacks.
In terms of total tackles, Connor Strahm and James Banks had a tied team-high 14 tackles.
